Vernon Fire Brigade

3102 30th Street

The importance of a well-equipped fire department cannot be underestimated. At first the Vernon Fire Brigade had only leather buckets to fight fires with. Prompted by insurance companies, the brigade purchased a hand-drawn engine equipped with only a hand pump. Later they upgraded to the motorized engine shown in this mural.

From the Vernon Fire Brigade

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
